Last Wednesday, Port employees along with the staff of William Wallace Welding and Burden’s Towing and Crane service placed a blimp replica on the same poll the displayed for the past 25-years, a US Navy A-4 SKyhawk. The blimp was designed by draftsman Rachael Voss and build and welded by TBCC’s welding class headed by Ron Carlbom.

For 25 years a United States Navy A-4 Skyhawk aircraft on the corner of Hwy 101 and Long Prairie Road has greeted travelers and residents on their way into Tillamook, standing guard over the city.
